Budding UK recording artist RAY BLK is back with new music. You can find the single and accompanying press release below.
Ahead of the October 1st release of her eagerly awaited debut album, Access Denied, RAY BLK drops here new single “Over You.” The track features the one and only, fellow UK goddess, Stefflon Don and its accompanying video will launch on September 20th.
In addition this Friday, September 10th, RAY teams up with Tommy Jeans and Vevo on their Less Buzz More Music campaign. The campaign aims to nurture positivity and looks to offer an alternative, through the power of music, to today’s hyper-connected world – from the news to social media. The campaign spotlights RAY through live video performances created for Vevo’s original content series, ROUNDS, a series of live performances by emerging and established musicians, using a 360-degree portraiture effect. To maximize impact, the Less Buzz, More Music campaign will be amplified through genre-targeted rotational content served on Vevo’s vast ConnectedTV (CTV).
The new single is only one of the standout tracks on RAY’s long-awaited debut album, Access Denied. Featured guests on the 14-song set include Giggs, Stefflon Don, Kojey Radical, Suburban Plaza and, of course, Kaash Paige. The album has been a couple of years in the making and RAY is thrilled that she will be able to share her artistry, heart and soul with her fans. RAY has spent lockdown writing and recording her long-awaited debut album which promises to be one of the cultural highlights of the year, reminding everyone what a truly special and unique artist she is. She also wrote and performed “Warriors,” the lead track from the hugely acclaimed 8 times BAFTA nominated film “Rocks,” which has also been nominated for Sync Of The Year at this years Music Week Awards.
Proving that she has other strings to her bow RAY hosted a 12-week run of the Apple Agenda Show with Mabel, Mahalia, Ghetts, and many more. As well as this, she fronted a special Black History Blackout Radio show for Apple Music which showcased her passion and knowledge about Black women in music including interviews with legends Ms Dynamite and Estelle. Following her highly acclaimed Oxford University and TED Talks, RAY was also invited by Cambridge University to discuss what Black History Month means to her and share her experience as a Black woman in the entertainment industry with the Cambridge Union.
